About Colby

Hello! My name is Colby and I love teaching English as a second language. I have been teaching ESL in Japan and Los Angeles at English Language Center for 3 years. I have taught all levels of children and adults. I am understanding and know how to make students feel comfortable and enjoy learning. For two and a half years as an English teacher in the Kansai region of Japan I made and taught lessons, tracked my student’s progress, created English games and exercises and conducted interviews and tests. As a teacher I try to get my student involved as much as possible and have as much student speaking time as possible. It is invaluable that students have fun while learning so I try to make sure the energy is up and he or she is having fun.

Currently I help substitute at ELC in Westwood. One aspect that helps me stand out is my preparation and work ethic. Before I step into a tutoring session I like to know exactly what I’m going to do and how I’m going to do it. This takes hard work and preparation to make sure there is never a dull moment in class. I take it as a personal failure if my students don’t understand material or if a session becomes mundane. Being prepared also enables improvisation, which is, of course, key when teaching. The battle of teaching a lesson is won before the class begins. My educational background is in public relations and I have written for a newspaper, which enhances my English proficiency level. Some of my personal strengths are inclusion, development of ability, energy, positivity, organization and work ethic. My energetic attitude is infectious, not only to my students, but my peers and coworkers too. I take pride in what I do. I do my best in every endeavor I take on because anything else would be a waste of time. Thank you very much. I hope we can discuss working together!
